Launch of Making Electoral Democracy Work research project

The Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council of Canada has awarded a major grant for a seven-year research project entitled Making Electoral Democracy Work.

Our project brings together an exceptional team of economists, political scientists, and psychologists from Canada, Europe, and the United States to undertake the most ambitious study ever undertaken of the impact of electoral rules on the functioning of democracy.

The study will examine 27 elections in five countries.

There are three inter-related components:

* an analysis of party strategies in these same 27 elections;
* an internet panel survey of the same voters over different elections;
* and a series of innovative experiments designed to complement the analyses of party and voter behaviour
